Chicago Death Index, 1871-1933



The long name for this index is Indexes to deaths in the city of Chicago during the years 1871 to 1933 : showing name, address and date of death. More information can be found here:

This index can be useful for

  • finding death dates, 1871-1877
  • finding deaths that don’t seem to appear in an online index
  • distinguishing between people with the same name based on address
  • identifying infants with unknown names who died at a family residence

It includes individuals who were buried in Chicago but died elsewhere and it also includes some stillbirths. Each entry provides name, address, death date, and a register number.

I will upload a reasonable number of quick digital camera images of the pages covering the names that you need. They will be readable, but they won’t be fancy.

If you need just a page or two, I’m likely to discount the final fee.
